In 2003 when Becky Allsup’s husband was transferred to Colorado from Minnesota for work, Becky found herself searching for unique, high-quality hardwood furniture and decorative accessories, but struggling to find anything that inspired her. She discovered a need for an upscale design store, which Northern Colorado was lacking. “I decided that Northern Colorado needed a store that had great style, great accessories, and great hardwood furniture pieces that could not be commonly found in the area,” Becky said. When Niche Design House was born in 2008, Becky finally had the opportunity to offer customers unique décor pieces that she herself had been searching for at a great price. Read on to learn more about all that Niche offers, and the passion behind the business itself.
With over 20 years of experience in the interior design industry, Becky had the experience necessary to craft beautiful hardwood furniture that could be further customized to a customer’s liking or taken straight from the sales floor and into someone’s home. Her one-of-a-kind, carefully curated accessories bring life and style into spaces of any kind and her passion for design shines through each piece And so, Niche Design House was created as a Loveland interior design firm which offers full-service interior design services throughout Northern Colorado along with a retail store which sells exclusive furniture pieces and accessories.
The store officially opened at The Promenade Shops at Centerra in 2013 and has been thriving ever since. A recent move allowed them to expand their space at The Promenade Shops at Centerra. The Niche team currently has 22 people who specialize in creating unique residential and commercial spaces in Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor, Greeley and Estes Park. Each space is designed with distinction and the goal to make each project a unique space which highlights a customer’s personality. “The accessories and furniture found in our retail showrooms are normally bought in limited quantities” Allsup explains. This ensures that each piece is unique to the customer, rather than bought in large quantities from a bulk supplier. The showroom in Loveland offers exclusive furniture pieces which are sure to make your house feel like a home.
In addition to the unique pieces found at Niche Design House, they also offer several interior design services and workshops. These services include residential interior design, commercial interior design, and a shoppable furnishing showroom. Their residential interior design services include everything from furniture supply to fixture upgrades to full-building remodels. Your trusted team member promises a custom experience and a unique result that will speak to you (or your company’s) personality and style preferences. You can hire someone from the Niche team to assist with new building designs, kitchen and bathroom remodels, even basement finishing projects! If your company is looking for an office upgrade, Niche offers several commercial services as well. Whether you have a large corporate office or a small business space, the Niche team can create a commercial space that uniquely complements and portrays your company’s vision.

One special offering found at Niche’s home base in Loveland are Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® Workshops, which are held monthly to teach customers how to best use the paint to better enhance the look and feel of your space.
